CQ questions

What is Collaborating for Quality?

Collaborating for Quality (CQ) is a series of interactive seminars organised by the NIHR Imperial Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC) and the Quality Improvement Team at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (ICHNT).

Sessions bring together a broad spectrum of healthcare stakeholders to learn about and provide input on innovative interventions for quality improvement.

What does CQ seek to achieve?

The CQ exchange seeks to develop innovative and evidence-based interventions to improve the quality and safety of care.

The series is a unique opportunity to become familiar with a pipeline of innovative interventions that are in the making. Past interventions include “big rooms”, big data insights on transitions of care and behavioural interventions for clinician burn out.

For speakers, CQ provides a space to inform stakeholders about their latest quality improvement (QI) interventions, which are either in development or in practice. Through interactive exercises, presenters engage CQ attendees in a collaborative group activity to gain research, feedback and connections to further develop their interventions.

What are the sessions like?

Our speakers consist of researchers, consultants or QI leaders (see recordings for examples). At each session, speakers present one main intervention with an engaging group activity.

Following the event, organisers invite attendees to continue the conversation in a friendly networking session.

Who is the audience?

The audience includes QI leaders, healthcare managers, clinicians, patients, researchers and other health stakeholders.
